Prayer is simply communing with God. Jesus set the perfect example for prayer when he taught his disciples what we call the Lords’ prayer. There are times in our life when we don’t know what to pray for but the word of God said that the Holy Spirit will make intercession for us. The Apostle Paul and Silas prayed and the Holy Spirit caused the ground to shake during their imprisonment. During the book of Acts we see not only the early Church praying but also the disciples.
Referring to their importance, examine the principal beliefs of Christianity. Christianity is a monotheistic religion whose adherents are followers of Jesus of Nazareth. Christianity reformed out of Judaism in the first century CE and originated in Palestine. Christians preached their faith in Jesus as the Christ, the Jewish Messiah, who is saviour of all peoples through his death and resurrection. The principal beliefs of Christianity are highlighted in the Ten Commandments, the Nicene Creed, the Beatitudes and the Golden Rule.
Through the divinity and humanity of the Christ, Christians and believers share the stories through word of mouth. The Son of God is also evident from the sacred texts of the Gospel testimonies which include the wonders and recoveries on people achieved by Jesus, and from the witness to his death, resurrection and ascension into heaven by his followers and other eyewitnesses. The beliefs of the divinity recognise his relationship to God as Son. Jesus’s divinity showed Jesus’ role to be the salvation of humanity and to resurrect and rise to defeat death. In the Gospel of John 1:14 “The Word became
Baptism is the sacrament in which, by water and the word of God, a person is cleansed of all sin and reborn and sanctified in Christ to everlasting life (CatholicCulture.org). Salvation, eternal life after death, the purification of all sins, and the significance of the Holy Trinity are all Christian beliefs that are demonstrated throughout the sacrament of Baptism. Christians believe that baptism is the first step one must take in order to achieve salvation although many fundamental Christian denominations believe baptism is all that is necessary to achieve it. Catholics believe that baptism is the first hurdle that one takes in order to attain salvation although they accept the teaching of Romans 10:12 which states that one does not need to be baptised to receive salvation they just have to believe in Christ Jesus: "For there is no difference between Jew and Gentile - the same Lord is Lord of all and richly blesses all who call on him”. They particularly stress that salvation is accomplished through faith in the Trinity, action and Baptism.
4:11).” “The Spirit bestows His charismata (gift) for the edification of the church, the formation of Christian character, and the service of the community.” Spiritual gifts very much differ from the Fruits of the Spirit. Spiritual gifts are given to the edification of the church whereas Fruit of the Spirit is what the believer receives by working out their Spiritual Gifts. The more the Christian exercise their Spiritual Gifts, the more fruit that exercise produces. As such, the more fruit a believer has in their life is a clear indication of spiritual maturity. The Spiritual Gift of speaking in tongues is not without controversy.
Romans 12:1-2, joins all of life with the worship of God. “Therefore I urge you, brethren, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies a living and holy sacrifice, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service of worship. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, so that you may prove what the will of God is, that which is good and acceptable and perfect.” So verse one says that presenting your bodies to God as a living and holy sacrifice is worship. In biblical times, a sacrifice was usually involving something dying. So Paul says "living" to make sure we know he doesn't mean literal human sacrifice.
